The Scene Project

The Scene Project is Queensland Theatre’s largest Education project, encouraging drama students throughout the state to engage in the creative process of performance, from rehearsal through to presentation. Each year a playwright pens a new work and the participating drama groups are tasked with the challenge of creating their own unique 15 minute version of the play. During the rehearsal phase, Queensland Theatre artists visit the participating schools to facilitate workshops. At the end of the project, local schools come together in a professional theatre venue to share their performance.

Queensland Theatre is current delivering The Scene Project across 8 locations in Queensland.

60 schools (71 school groups) are creating their own unique performance of The Shot, by Angela Betzien – a new play commissioned specifically for the 2019 project.
